    Looking to buy a 308 AR... PWS, KAC or something else?

    I'm looking to buy my first 308 AR. I'm looking for something quality. I'm aware of PWS since I have a 5.56 from them and I'm aware of KAC because... well, KAC. Are there other brands I should be looking at? Of these two (or others), what is considered the "best"?

    My uses are generally short range <300 yards shooting.

    Without knowing your budget, we can only guess, and throw out our favorite brands.
    If you have $4200, the KAC ACC is about THE absolute top of the line in .308’s. If your budget is $1800, that changes things.

    I would look into KAC, LMT and Larue. Between the three of them there will be something that suits your budget and needs.

    I have a mk10 308 from SOLGW ive been very happy with. Its a heavy precision type config, but they have a variety of builds based on what your looking for.

    Savage is coming out with a 308 that looks very promising

    I just bought a PWS MK216 last month. I like it so far. Plus the customer service has been quick to respond to my questions.

    KAC CC or PC is what you want if you have the coin.

    I would also suggest taking a look at the POF-USA Revolution too.

    Depends heavily on budget and application.
    Under 300 can cover a lot of ground as far as use.
    How much you plan to shoot per year is also a significant factor. If you are going to shoot over 2,500 rounds per year of decent ammo, the math favors a long-life system (higher initial investment), but if you are going to be under 1k per year, or have a low performance requirement, then you can go with a low-cost option to little detriment to your experience.

    I like gap, kac, Lmt and LWRC (I don't have a pof or jp.), but for resale and GP, either a ECC or EMC used May be something to consider. Even used, they aren't cheap.
